Profile

More

A  theatre-loving, script writing, Shakespeare directing, arts administrating, classically-trained-singing, event planning, social media strategizing, YouTubing, collaborating and curious Creative,  who moved to the UK in 2014 to become a part of London's vibrant arts and culture scene.

The next step I am looking to take is to enter the wonderful world of London Theatre.  My previous experience directing and acting in performances of Shakespeare, and performing in Opera and Musical Theatre, running my own YouTube channel for five years, writing stage play upon screenplay upon social media post, event plan, and communications strategy...all of this, I'm sure, will help me create something wonderful.

My play, I'll be Watching You was produced in the 2009 Canterbury High School Arts Festival, and I recently had the opportunity to pitch my screenplay to Bankside Films and FilmLondon through the Screen Arts Institute.  

This past March, I produced a drama showcase for the Goodenough College community, directing two of the three scenes presented, my colleague and I casting them from fellow members. This experience reminded me just how much I love the whole process of theatre, and want to get involved on a more professional level.

The CV attached to my profile details my experience in the Performing Arts specifically. My general work experience is detailed in the "Where I Am From" section of my profile.

I am a dual citizen of Canada and Finland, able to work and live in the UK without restriction.

My corporate video portfolio is available upon request.
